Just a small one at about 12 feet
Since crocodiles feed by grabbing and holding onto their prey, they have evolved sharp teeth for tearing and holding onto flesh, and powerful muscles that close the jaws and hold them shut. These jaws can bite down with immense force, by far the strongest bite of any animal. The pressure of the crocodile's bite is more than 5,000 pounds per square inch compared to just 335 pounds per square inch for a rottweiler, 400 pounds per square inch for a large great white shark, 800 pounds per square inch for a hyena or 2,000 pounds per square inch for a large alligator.
Mmmmmm. I'll stay out of the water then!
